Energy supply systems for shore power supply in ports

More and more ports are confronted with an increased public awareness of environmental issues. Stricter guidelines are forcing ports to implement more environmentally friendly technologies. Our customised energy supply systems for providing vessels at berth with shore power are the solution to reduce air pollution, noise and vibration. An international standard ensures compatibility of shore power connection for different types of vessels at any port in the world. IEC 80005-1 defines the standard for medium-voltage connections and IEC 80005-3 for supply of low-voltage connections.
Every port is unique: different tides, terminal design and equipment vary from port to port, terminal to terminal and vessel to vessel. Every day the port handles different ships of different sizes with different loading, moored in different locations with different shore power supply requirements. Reduced planning efforts and efficient handling of freight are important for the success of a port. Shore power connections have to be compliant with this highly dynamic port environment. However, they must not restrict the operation of the port.

Requirements for shore power connections:

  • Convenient handling
  • Flexible and manoeuvrable
  • Space-saving even in difficult installation spaces
  • Long-lasting and resistant to outside influences

igus has been developing and manufacturing customised cable management systems for the maritime industry for many years. Around the world, our team provides consultancy services and assistance with planning, installation, inspection and a spare parts service.
